How important is it to use waxing products from the same brand?

Waxing products can be confusing. There are so many different brands and lines available that finding the right balance of products for your salon can be challenging. So, for many of us, once we find a product or two from a specific brand we like, we tend to stick with them and add in different ones depending on what is on sale and what fragrance we like on the day.  However, doing this can have a negative outcome to the waxing treatment.

When manufacturers have developed a complete range of products needed for the waxing process, they have undergone rigorous testing to ensure that they are all able to be used together and that they give a superior treatment.  “An advantage to staying with a particular brand is knowing that all of these products have been formulated to be used with one another or layered over one another,” says Francesca Fusco, M.D., a dermatologist at New York City’s Wexler Dermatology. “They’ve been tested on skin to give optimal results when working synergistically together.”  James Hammer, a Boston-based cosmetic chemist, agrees that there’s a perk to using a single line. “Products made by one brand have been specifically designed to be used together” he says. “Care has been taken to ensure the ingredients of one formula won’t interfere with the effectiveness of the ingredients of another.”[1]

Other reasons to consider using the complete range include

  1. They look fabulous in your treatment room
    Admit it, there’s something extremely satisfying about lining up a bunch of matching bottles. Whether they’re sleek and minimalist or super girly, a complete set of products makes a serious style statement. Add a scented candle and a vase of fresh flowers and your room to complete to look.  The flora inspired range of products by Jax Wax Australia will look amazing on display in any treatment room with their harmonised look and give your clients confidence in the products you are using.
  2. They have complementary fragrances
    Not keen on having the treatment room having a cloud of cloying, clashing scents? If you stick with products from the same range, the fragrances will be complementary and won’t clash.  For example, consider having the Jax Wax Alpine Bluebell Pre-Wax Cleanser with the Alpine Bluebell Pre and Post Wax Oil and the Alpine Bluebell Hot or strip wax and complete the treatment with the Alpine Bluebell After Wax Body Lotion.  Not only will your treatment room have a relaxing lavender fragrance, but your clients won’t smell like a walking potpourri jar when they leave.

Finally, it is worth remembering: Read the product literature, and follow directions because when it comes to today’s products, educating yourself is one of the best ways to keep your clients skin looking good and the waxing process problem free. Jax Wax Australia’s products have been tested on skin with different conditions to give optimal results when working together. Care has been taken to ensure the ingredients of one formula won’t interfere with the effectiveness of the ingredients of another.
